At its best, Bohemian Rhapsody is a singalong ode to the music of Queen. When it's bad it's a soap opera about Freddie Mercury, which is no fault of Rami Malek's wonderful performance. The script here is mostly surface level rubbish leaving nothing to be dug into emotionally and leaving much to be desired. I felt the run-time and was ready for it to be over. That irony of it all is that the band had a say in the direction of this film and they can be blamed for washing this tragic story of a music icon into something less than true.
